5:00 PM 'All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce Of 1914' During the early months of WWI on the battle fields in Belgium, thousands of men put down their guns and left the protection of trenches to meet their enemies in "no man's land."

They exchanged gifts of tobacco, rum and chocolates, even photographs of loved ones. They sang songs, played a game of soccer, and buried each other's dead.

Upon orders from above, they eventually returned to their trenches and re-instigated a brutal war that would last four more years.

This relatively unknown story was no doubt covered up by the propaganda machine of War News. The retelling of this story reminds us of the atrocities of war, our common humanity and for a few brief moments, the hope of a peaceful future.

The music ranges from trench songs to patriotic and sentimental tunes, as well as Christmas music from the participating countries.

The text is taken from a wide range of sources including letters, journals, official war documents, poetry, gravestone inscriptions - even an old radio broadcast.

Composed for acapella male voices, "All Is Calm" will feature the finest all local cast under the direction of acclaimed local Music Director, Juan Acosta and Stage Director, Jacob Bruce.

Admission/Cost: $15 - $30

Location:
Veterans Museum and Memorial Center

7:00 PM Stage: The Green Cockatoo It's July 14th, 1789, Paris. The city is in an uproar and the political/social life is on the very brink of enormous changes … changes that will effect the entire world from then on. A rag-tag theatrical group is performing their improvised show for some of the aristocracy. At a certain moment no one is sure if the frenzied performers are screaming real insults at the nobility as part of the show, or if they are finally telling them their cathartic truth about the burgeoning revolution and the overthrow of the aristocracy.

Admission/Cost: $10 - $20

9:00 PM Music: Israel Vibration and Psydecar Israel Vibration is a reggae harmony group that went on to be one of the most successful roots groups to form in Jamaica in the 1970s.
